Summary
In July 2008, an Alaska court ruled that a property tax exemption for religious schools does not violate either the state or federal constitution. Several groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, filed suit after the state's legislature determined that "the residence of an educator in a private religious or parochial school" qualifies as "property used exclusively for religious purposes. The Superior Court for the State of Alaska in the Third Judicial Circuit at Anchorage determined that such tax exemptions are not illegally improper. ADF-allied attorney Kevin Clarkson represented two churches in the case.
